The tickets for “Ring of Fire” at the Plymouth Playhouse on Thursday, April 4, have been spoken for at this time. A waiting list has been started with the possibility of making another trip before the show ends in May. If you are still interested, please call in and be added to the waiting list as many times, things come up and those who had planned to go are unable to at the last minute so the waiting list is used. “Ring of Fire is two hours of great country music and a loving tribute to the man who wrote and performed some of the best that’s ever been recorded. It is the music of Johnny Cash, and for Man in Black fans, it doesn’t get better than that.”
